The flash drive for the 8GB iPhone 4 is being manufactured by a “Korean company”, that could mean South Korea's Samsung which is Apple's supplier when it is not being sued. The iPhone 4 was first launched in June 2010 with 16 GB and 32 GB versions, with a white version added to the lineup in April. The 8GB version is expected to launch within weeks.
